Personally, I would start with a single 750GB (or 1TB) drive and wait
until you fill that up (and prices inevitably fall) to get the second
one.  With only 2 tuners in the system you should be fine.

Also, if this system is only for MythTV, I think a 9500 graphics gives
you everything possible for VDPAU, and costs a lot less than the 9600.
 I would recommend going fanless if possible.  It will be quieter and
the fan won't go bad.
